  • Bad birthday

    This is not the best birthday I've had. This morning at 6:30 am a car knocked my niece off her bicycle on her way to work. She suffered a broken arm and severe bruising to her ribs and back. At 11 am my son in law was taken into hospital after suffering a stroke. He is comfortable and is being constantly momitored for the next 24 hours. He will be having a brain scan sometime this evening. We are having the children stay with us tonight, they are a little bewildered but bearing up. My daughter is trying to be strong for them but sometimes it gets too much for her and she breaks down. Tony is only 49 years old and it has come as a great shock to us. He is a veteran of the 2nd Gulf war and recieved some injuries in Iraq which have left him partly disabled. We will be living on a knife edge for the next few days.

        Mick, thinking of you and yours mate.

        Hope things turn out for the good.

          Thanks to you all. We have to wait until tommorow for the results of the scan, so I don't think we will get a good nights sleep, but I'm ever the optomist.

                                Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

                                Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

                                Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

                                Brilliant stuff Jim. Congratulations on the layout and the workmanship, but most of all enjoy it.

                                Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

                                I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

                                Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
